Childhood Frustrations!

Do you have frustations to become or to have when you were still a kid? And by any circumstances it wasn't become possible? And now that you became parents or old enough you want it to be applied to your kids or someone else in particular?

Then I am not alone:) I have so many childhood frustrations that I am now filling in through my children. I want them to have what I haven't before. From the simple stufftoys to the places I wanted to be and now I want them to experience those.

I have no regrets about it because I understand it so well. Instead those frustrations became one of my encourager or guide why I become what I am now! Now the question is; is it unfair to our kids applying to them what we want instead of letting them have the things they personally wants? Any disadvantagse and advantages? I just came to ponder upon about this because my kids are already growing and already shows what they wants. They already have decisions which woke me up that I want them to like what I like..hahah which is not good:( But in the other hand, the fact that they can have now and can be what they want it to be! That's a blessing!

My wife buys the kids too many clothes, more than they can wear--she wanted nicer clothes when she was little.

It is not unfair as long as what you want is the same thing as what they want. But if you are forcing what you want without even considering the wants of your kids then that is wrong.

We can always suggest to our kids what we want them to accomplish which we missed in our own lives but we must never force it to them. They have their own lives to live and their own dreams to fulfill. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
